CNIL closes the formal notice procedure on Microsoft

Following the launch of Windows 10 in July 2015, the CNIL was alerted through the press and by letters from political parties on potential violations of the French Data Protection Act. Seven online observations have been carried out between April and June 2016. On this occasion, several violations have been found and in particular: excessive collection of personal data, track of users’ web-browsing without their consent and a lack of security and confidentiality of users’ data.
